Magnolia Blog Hop Wishes You a Merry Christmas

Magnolia Blog Hop

Welcome to the first Magnolia Project Blog Hop. This talented stamping group has members from several different countries all over the world. 

We are here today to wish you a Merry, Merry Christmas!

Let’s get started:

I created my Christmas card using the beautiful Christmastime is Here Suite. This stamp set quickly became my favorite of this holiday season. The best part? It works for all sorts of events. I was able to make birthday, sympathy, and thinking of you cards! 

Christmas Rose

The Designer Series Paper is the star of this card. I used it for the oval focal point and the strip on the front. Pretty paper makes card making a breeze.

 I also used the Tufted Embossing folder to mimic the same pattern of the Designer Series Paper. Love this!

 

Your next assignment is to hop on to Margriet,she will have a stunning project to share.

Please leave us all a comment. We would love to hear from you.

Merry Christmas,

Festive Decorations Stampin’ Up! Style

Happy Sunday Stampers! 

Today I am sharing an easy candle decoration created with Stampin’ Up! Products. 

Last year I purchased some battery-operated candles from Ikea. They are a nice red for the holiday, but very plain. I decided to dress them up using the Christmastime is Here designer series paper and a few other products.

I used a lot of gold elements because the rose image is created with gold outlines. Bling is always a good thing.

The great thing about battery candles is you can add paper decorations without the fear of fire. You can also change the decorations next year if you want to try something different.

The Christmastime is Here Suite is so beautiful, I had to throw a card into this post. The designer series paper makes your card making easy. People will be impressed!

Christmastime is Here

Last week Stampin’ Up! released a limited time only Christmas Suite – “Christmastime is Here.” It is a glorious stamp set that works for Christmas and other occasions.

When I first saw this suite I did not think it was my style, but the more I stamp with it the more I have come to love it! Funny how that works.

This card uses the country Floral 3D embossing Folder. I though it was a nice complement to the roses in the Designer Series Paper. Nice and easy card, which makes me happy.

I will share several projects over the next week or so just to entice you to order this stamp set before it is gone. It is while supplies last. Shop HERE to get the beautiful set.

Birds of a Feather – Enjoy the Season

This past year Stampin’ Up! has encouraged us to share #simplestamping projects. I never thought I would be a simple stamper but here I am loving it!

As I promised I am sharing another Birds of a Feather project today. This darling chick just brings a huge smile to my face. And it fits #simplestamping to a T.

Simple Directions

To create this card, I started with a Whisper White note card. I added a layer of Real Red cardstock and piece of Night Before Christmas Designer Series paper.

The chick is stamped on Whisper White and die cut using the Stitched Nested Labels. He is colored using Daffodil Delight Mango Melody and Real Rel Blends. A touch of Wink of Stella adds shine to the Santa hat and star. A simple piece of ribbon and red rhinestones finish off the project.

This card would be perfect to mass produce using your Stamparatus. Die cut the labels, position your stamps and get busy.

I hope you enjoyed my funny little chick today,

Christmas Wishes for CAS(E) 343

I am joining in on a sketch challenge today. CAS(E) retro #343 caught my eye. I also needed to create a non-traditional Christmas color card for a team challenge, so this card satisfies both tasks.

Here is the sketch:

Case this sketch 343

Here is my non-traditional Christmas colors card:

This foil card stock is so bright and pretty! I like the way this card turned out and could see it duplicated in many different colors.

A tip for die cutting foil card stock – always use a new cutting plate so the foil does not pick up scratches.

Lots of Cheer for TGIF Challenge

It is Christmas in July. Did you know that? It seems even though it is really hot, our minds are turning toward the holidays. TGIFC #221 was just what I needed to get inspired for the upcoming holiday. 155 days in case you are wondering.

TGIFC

I chose to go with some non-traditional colors for my card. Coastal Cabana and Granny Apple Green are some of my favorite colors ever, so picking them for Christmas is a no-brainer.  This snowman is so cute. It would be fun to find some boxes and make a 3D snowman to sit on the fireplace hearth.

I love the way this turned out.

How do you feel about color choices for Christmas? Red and Green or are you willing to try something different? I would love to know your thoughts.

Merry Christmas,
